Information Technology instructor, Guido Santella, took 6 students and 1 alumnus from South Hills School of Business & Technology's Altoona campus to participate in a creative 24-hour learning experience at HackPSU, a “hackathon” event hosted by Penn State University where students can learn to code or experienced programmers can compete to build something from scratch.
Words like “bubbly,” positive,” “outgoing,” and “kind-hearted,” were just some of what Kari Schlegel’s friends had to say about her. They also said it’s fitting that an online art exhibit created by people affiliated with South Hills School of Business & Technology was recently named in her memory.
South Hills School of Business & Technology is launching the Kari L. Schlegel Memorial Gallery as part of the school’s website to showcase visual artwork, photography, illustration, and design created by current students, alumni, and lifelong learning participants. The gallery is named in honor of Schlegel, a 2012 graduate of the Graphic Arts program who passed away in December 2016.
South Hills alum and Restek Corporation International Customer Service Supervisor, Mike Shuey, invited South Hills Business Administration-Management & Marketing and Information Technology students for a tour of the Restek facilities to give them a lesson on employee stock ownership plans (ESOP).
Tabatha Bedlyon, a Lewistown Management & Marketing student, has already applied the skills she acquired at South Hills to open her own antiques shop ahead of schedule and before her graduation in September 2017.
